Depictions of place, time and people in Australia

More and more I am fascinated with photoessays and compilations centred around the theme of identity and space and the formation of the knowledge of self. Here is a recent discovery:

SILENCE | Photographs by Brad Rimmer

Memory and cultural idiosyncrasies inform Brad Rimmer’s recollection of growing up in the Western Australian Wheatbelt. These contemplative images depict the quietness of the rural landscape and the photographer’s search for connection in the changing shape of a once familiar place. Rimmer’s photographs consider the ‘familiar’ beauty of his hometown and gently affirm that personal identity is frequently rooted in an empathetic understanding of the people and places of our past, experiences that form an indelible link we hold on to throughout our lives.
